McMurdo Group—The Third In The Search & Rescue Series Is Upcoming  (Webinar)

[SatNews] Imagine being out at sea when a sudden storm comes upon you, damaging your boat in violent waves until you begin taking on water—alone and in distress, you activate your emergency beacon and help is on the way to your location via the COSPAS-SARSAT network of search and rescue technology and professionals.

This is what happened to Sarah Outen as she attempted to cross the Pacific Ocean from Japan to Canada. In the last of our 3-part series on Search and Rescue, the McMurdo Group will present real-life rescue stories that demonstrate the many ways that the COSPAS-SARSAT system saves lives.  Speakers will share their rescue stories and life-saving strategies, and provide insight into the future of Search and Rescue products. This webinar will occur on May 29th, starting at 11:00 a.m., ET (3:00 p.m. GMT) and will last approximately one hour.
Webinar participants will be taken through:

  • An in-depth description of the extensive role of a Rescue Coordination Center (RCC), the agencies that monitor, coordinate and manage the actual rescue operation
  • Rescue story of Sarah Outen, the bold British adventurer who is circling the globe completely on her own power by bike, kayak and rowing
  • An expert in the design of emergency beacons will share innovative improvements on the horizon


All registrants receive a free Rescue Stories eBook at the conclusion of the event.
